Dental Implants: Am I a Candidate?
A dental implant is the permanent placement of an artificial tooth to replace a natural tooth that has fallen out. Our implants are made of titanium metal and fused to the jawbone to create longevity and confidence. These teeth are permanent and reliable, unlike fixed bridges or other temporary dental treatments that may need to be replaced several times.
Implants look extremely natural. And, since they are fused to the jawbone and not adjoining teeth, they can help preserve the overall health and integrity of your mouth.
Because this is a permanent replacement for your tooth, the dental implant procedure is a lengthy process. First, patients receive a full dental exam that will include both X-rays and mouth molds to ensure a proper fit. A dental implant cylinder is placed in your jawbone, then, after a period of healing, an abutment is placed. The implant prosthesis or crown is the last step in this process.
Our cosmetic dentists craft natural smiles and will work with you through each step of the journey to ensure that your treatment plan exceeds your expectations.
